Pedestrians at risk . . .

icbc-pedestrian-safety-infographicCrashes with pedestrians spike in fall and winter as the weather changes and daylight hours decrease.

When pedestrians get hurt, nobody wins. Whether you’re driving on the road or walking on the sidewalk, safety is up to all of us. Almost one in five people killed in car crashes across B.C. are pedestrians.

The sobering fact is that nearly 75 per cent of crashes involving pedestrians happen at intersections. Year-round, crashes involving pedestrians happen most often on Fridays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.   ICBC great tips!
